The Phoenix Singers adopted its name in 1985, when the choir was re-born from the ashes of the former Leek High School Choir. Since then the choir has developed a varied repertoire, performing major choral works, small-scale pieces and contemporary music. It draws its membership from all parts of the Staffordshire Moorlands and beyond. A registered charity (no.1085474), it is a genuine community choir in that it welcomes anyone who enjoys singing. There are no auditions.
The choir has been involved with exchanges with choirs in France, Holland, Spain and Leek’s twin town of Este in Italy.
To celebrate its 25th anniversary, The Phoenix Singers established “Young Phoenix” for 7-13 year olds, offering local children the opportunity to sing and make music together and also to take part in concerts with the senior choir.
